October Puzzle - Birds

I did another puzzle a few days prior but didn't take a picture. I got this one at a thrift store the other day for $2 and got right to it. It got late and I was close to finishing so when Criminal Minds ended and Rocky began at 12am I kept going. Then Rocky ended and so did 2 more sitcoms. Before I knew it, it was 3am and I as done! It was a fun puzzle.

Lint Roller Extroardinaire

I HAD this vinyl saying on the wall but as you can see, I had a good excuse to remove it and throw it away. I had been on the fence about it but this little incident with the "LINT" roller made it an easy decision. Go Mr. Sticky! Yes, that's lint, vinyl lettering AND several layers of paint. OOPS!

Mirror Mirror

Remember this project? Probably not so here's a link back to the original post called Framed.

I decided to paint it black and get it on the wall. It looks great and thanks to a friend giving away a free huge plant it looks even better!

Here's a close up of the detail including the fact that I took a picture of the one spot that it looks like I missed with the paint. Whatever, it adds character.

Stump removal

The other day I mentioned to my dad that I wanted to finally remove the stump from the peach tree. He said it seemed loose and I figured it just seemed that way.

Today I went out with intentions of shoveling around it and working it out by rocking it back and forth. I decided to give it a push with my foot and it fell right over. A child could have done it! So there it is, some thing I had expected to be quite a project took less than a minute. Yay! No more painting post for me. I got quite a laugh out of this.

What I've been reading

Here's what I've been reading. I found Harley Jane Kozak by searching the library catalog online. I'd say I got lucky! They're fun and clean (in my opinion) romantic mysteries. I'm already on the third book and yes, it is a series. Even better! 

I am currently reading Dead Ex but I'm not picturing it because the one on the website doesn't match the cover of the one I'm actually reading. I'm picky like that.
